Glenn Scott Wright is currently co-director of London’s prestigious Victoria Miro Gallery, one of the largest galleries of contemporary art in Europe. The gallery represents an impressive roster of successful international artists – both established and emerging and as such has collaborated on artists’ projects and exhibitions at many of the world’s most important museums including the Tate Gallery in London, MoMA New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and Kiasma Helsinki. British artists in the gallery’s programme include Turner prize nominees Peter Doig, Chris Ofili, Isaac Julien, Grayson Perry and Ian Hamilton Finlayas well as international artists from as far afield as Japan, Australia, Brazil, Germany and the United States including Yayoi Kusama, Tracey Moffatt, Adriana Varejao, Thomas Demandand Doug Aitken.

Previous to his long association with the gallery, Wright was co-director of the Paley Wright Gallery in London in the early 90s and subsequently founded a consultancy, Glenn Scott Wright Contemporary Art which handled artists projects, collections and exhibitions. During this period, he curated a number of exhibitions in the United States, Australia, Germany and Italy charting the  emergence of a new generation of British artists at the time in which he exhibited the work of Rachel Whiteread, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Douglas Gordon, Mona Hatoumand Jane and Louise Wilson amongst others, at early and significant stages of their careers. His most recent external curatorial project was “After Image” which he curated for the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh as part of the Edinburgh International Festival in 2003 which subsequently traveled to Finland to the Helsinki City Art Gallery in 2004.
